Oooohh....ooooohhhh...I know! My house...'cause my tranny took the big dump over the weekend :( I don't have 3rd gear at ALL...it's neutral, and I have to let off completely to get it to shift to 2nd. I'm hoping to *maybe* have the new one done and installed this weekend, but I don't know for sure...

In all I *might* make it this coming month, but I'm unsure at this point in time.

I don't know of anything special going on here in NEFL...sooooo, I'm up for meeting more guys from Tampa and the like. I personally don't mind the drive(of course if I'm riding I'm springing for some gas $$). I do like Mt. Dora, but there are those that can't make the show due to the day of the month it's held...maybe we can come up with something the saturday after that?

I'm not in a "rush" either. I'd really kinda like it more downstate with more guys from Tampa this time(I don't mind the drive), but of course I have "other things" to attend to before I can make it without haveing to bum a ride.

My tranny is "together". All of the internals are in it and the clearances are spot on.

I had one issue while putting it all together. The front pump that I got had the wrong reaction shaft in it! The internal bushing for the input shaft was too small! I had to reuse an old reaction shaft/backing plate. The plate and all were good, but I couldn't check to see if the pump gears spun becuase I don't have anything to stick down in the front without hurting the seal. I'm thinking that it "should" be OK, but I want to make sure. I couldn't spin them by hand(with a thin screwdriver), but I think that's because of the assembly lube...it's REALLY sticky!

I have to do the line pressure mod to the case(have to get the tap and screw), then it's done! Time to put that bad boy in! I really hope that replacing the shift cable will solve the stiff shifting issue I have.

I also have the tranny cooler installed(driving around in "ghetto-style" right now with no front bumper or driver's fender for the install). I found a great place to route the lines and I have been pretty successful making my fiberglass duct for the blower. I'm finishing that right now! I have to wire it, but that's not a big deal.

I am in Pensacola. I don't know of any other turbo dodges around here though my brother said he has seen another csx-t. But, I would like to make it down to a meet soon. I hang around alot of high-hp guys like supercharged cobras, camaros and the 600hp evo that's been posted in the vids section (my brother got a ride in it). But I think a change from all these more common cars would be nice and to meet some of you guys that post here. So far I have yet to meet someone from this board. I did register a while back on the flsdac site. There wasn't really a membership then 'cause it was kinda new; let me know if I can help or whatever and if your thinking about a meeting or event I'd be willing to take the drive and stay a few nights.

Thanks :)

Well guys since the SDAC-15 is in June I figured we wouldn't have an event this month. If you guys are game I think a BBQ is in order. See pics on www.flsdac.com . We can have another one like last year @ howard park in Tarpon Springs or somewhere else. Last year Larry(4sfed4) and I provided everything but since he sold the Spirit R/T he's not really in the game anymore plus he's a dad now. Anyone know of any state parks with good parking and facilties? My car has been in the garage just waiting to get a new wastegate. Hopefully this month I will get what needs to be done on the car. Let me see if I can find any car shows coming up keep me informed and if you all decided on a place let me know
